JSC 105 Centaur II

by JSCModels


The tug Centaur II was built few years ago in Gdansk, Poland. You can spot it in Gdynia harbour, Poland.

Centaur II
can be used for towing, piloting, fire extinguishing and assisting the ships in ports and on Baltic sea, also in average ice conditions.

The paper model is to scale 1 : 100. This scale allows model to be very detailed. Just look at the Wheelhouse! It doesn't show in a picture, but in the model there is a coffee mug which you can put on the desk in a wheelhouse :)

Free Floating display technique

by oldHooker

Half of the plane and scene are an illusion, generated by the material being affixed to a true first surface mirror which absorbs the brunt of the seam lines and causes the mirror surface to become virtually invisible.     This technique allows aircraft/spacecraft/birds/angels... super heros' etc, to look like they are in unsupported flight; close up you can tell, but more than 2-3 ft away and the subject is floating before your eyes, to the point it causes people to stare!  

I invented and Patented this technique, known as the MID (Mirror Image Display), which allows modelers to not only make an eye catching display, but also build TWO dioramas from ONE kit!       Here are some of my model airplane projects I have completed to date:

1/360th Academy Tu-144

1/300 Airfix 747-400 landing at St. Maarten

1/390 Academy C-5A mounted on a wall plaque display

1/200 Heller SUD Caravelle

1/144 Academy F-14A

1/144 Revell 747-100

1/300 Airfix 747-400

1/48 Revell Stuka

1/200 Hasegawa 737-200

1/390 Academy Tu-144

Not only is this technique great for model projects, but also breathtaking ornaments!

Floating Angel Ornament

I wasn't kidding when I said there was lots more great stuff to come from the Revell stand!

Greeting everyone at the entrance was a fantastic display including a very impressive Kenworth truck model, plus the award-winning VW Transporter and Trabant kits from 2009:
